July 2, By: TrekMovie. We have summarized some of the highlights along with the full video below. This prompted a fairly unfiltered and honest line of thought. That moment stands out for me when Jeri Ryan arrived. Because men like — as they should, as all of you should and I love and adore every one of you — they love sex. And they need it. She played a wonderful character.
We all hope. Hope springs eternal that we can do it by ourselves but we still need sex. So that one stands out. Publicity photo of Jeri Ryan as Seven of Nine. Most difficult? That bloody thing with my hair. Endlessly stupid hijinks with my hair!
Not only my hair. My hair, my breasts, my feet, my waist. So it was all physicalized. How many times did they change my hairdo in the first six months? Who has a hairdo like that [mimics high hair bun] in outer space? I finally said to them at the end of the first season. Take this [mocks removing corset] thing they had in here. Take that. Take bobby pins. Take the boots off. Give me some shoes I can walk in and let me be Janeway. Of course I know it was a numbers game and their demographic was men from 20 to I get all of that. But men are not stupid.
The last thing they want is a false captain, an impersonator. They want the real deal. So once they let me be me, the men came on board as they are wont to do. Source: tumblr. When asked about how she was underestimated, Mulgrew gave more detail on the kind of scrutiny she was under at the beginning. First of all you do know it went to another actress first — Genevieve Bujold — the wonderful French-Canadian actress. She lasted one day! As a result of that strange dance for the first six months at least ten guys from administration — Paramount, UPN — stood on the lip of the stage arms crossed like this and just watched me.
They just watched. It was sort of unbelievably unnerving. But I took it as the gauntlet that it was. Then I am going to play it with you and we will see wins this. Something in me rose up at the very thought that after Miss Bujold defected, that I would fail and then they would bring back another man. We simply cannot, we must go forward. And guess who had me to the White House after the end of the first season?
A woman by the name of Hillary Clinton. Publicity photo of Kate Mulgrew as Capt. I could relate to her passion. Not that I was passionate about science, but that Janeway had a singular passion. And it was probably neck and neck with command in her list of priorities. But it was science that was constantly compelling her to explore, to try, to transcend.
Going deeper, she revealed that it was her idea to bring in the recurring character of holodeck Leonardo da Vinci. This is a woman that is full of life. She is full of that kind of wonderful texture and we have to make sure that we layer her. So give me somebody that will round her out.
Give me somebody creative, unexpected. Give me an artist. How about Leonardo da Vinci? I thought that was great. I thought that was a terrific thing to do to humanize her and also her loneliness, I wanted that to humanize.
That is hard…we did that for seven years, we did 26 a year, so it is very hard to distinguish. That was a terrific philosophical conundrum for Janeway who loves life as a scientist, but certainly as a captain I love life. Is it not my right to end this cycle? It is it not my right to come to an end? Because eternity would be too hard. Mulgrew also took some time to reminisce about the warmer and more fun moments on stage. When talking about standout moments, she highlighted her friendships with the other actors.
Every scene I did with John de Lancie, whom I adore. And the friendships that grew. Bob Picardo became my great, great friend and I cherish him to this day.
Robbie McNeill the same. Loved all of my scenes with Tuvok. Loved all of my scenes with all of those boys. Of course they are all completely naughty. You know invariably they left it to me because they knew that I would deliver. The Voyager boys at a reunion in Celebrity , Interview , VOY. Celebrity , Discovery , Interview , Sci-Fi. The line cannot have been a coincidence. I read it in some sci fi magazine at the time. Yeah, its always amazing to hear when the First family are Trek fans.
I know the Obama family was as well. I was very happy with the character of Seven because of her struggle with her humanity, her character. As a teen boy watching Trek I probably did my share of fantasizing Seven, though I would have watched no matter what. Exactly the same thing as with Troi.
Every other retooling or event never had the same kind of impact. I agree mostly, even though I was a teenager when Voyager was airing. These shows are supposed to be in a future where gender-equality and respect should rule the day. It just seemed over the top. Not that it stopped me from watching the show. It was a misguided an attempt to pander to a younger male generation. Its subjective. I thought Jeri Ryan did a very good job with the character, and if she had good looks to go with that, thats all the better!
She acted well, very much a female version of Data from Next Generation, another of my favourite characters in Star Trek. Jeri Ryan was a tall, statuesque blonde lady in a leotard so tight you could practically count the pores in her skin. Her costume was fitted so that each breast was individually outlined. She offers to have sex with Kim within 4 episodes. The stories are continued in the post-Voyager novels. Janeway was a great role model in the show , but as a man I hoped for a deep romance for her , not on the holodeck as the sexist stalker she became , but with one of the most upright and decent officers on the show that being Chakotay!
But alas as it happened , she became a career spinster! She was engaged at the start of the series, and she had her flings, but she was captain first and foremost.
